Is this right ?

Hi, I was looking at android boxes and opened a page to look at the content and within a minute it took me trough to paypal, I thought I'd clicked on buy now by mistake so went back and it did it again, in fact every time I open the page it takes me through to paypal, I've tried other sellers and it hasn't happened once.
I'm wondering could it possibly be a phishing scam, I've been buying on ebay for years and this is the 1st time this has ever happened.
Thanks for reading.

Yes looks like your Account has been compromised. You need to contact Ebay. Someone more knowledgable than me on this will be along later with more advice.

It sounds like an overlay on a listing.

 

You need to report the listing, but it will be very difficult to do so because you will need the original listing number, which will only flash up for less than a second, then the overlay will appear with a fake eBay listing number.

 

I'd call eBay CS and let them know.
